Description Nike, the goddess of victory, was a dominant image in Athens, where she was worshiped for her alliance with Athena, the patron goddess of the city. The swift, winged goddess is depicted in a running pose that evokes flight. She was attached to a votive object, perhaps a tripod or other bronze vessel.
